Before you ask: Yes, Cage Warriors 61 took place after Cage Warriors 62. It was a last minute venue and date change but as everything had already been setup and announced, the guys decided to keep the numbering as had been set. This was ummmm…a very interesting trip! We got caught in one of the worst snow storms Amman has … Read More

It’s a bit of an understatement to say that the next few weeks are busy. Forget Christmas! Between holidays and MMA shows, I’m in five different countries in the next six weeks.

Congratulations to Sean Carter from BKK fighters for grabbing that opportunity. There were a lot of submission … Read More

It’s just semantics but I know how touchy some people get about it. I’ve been kind … Read More
